This kernel configuration is based on the Gentoo image (sys-kernel/raspberrypi-image-3.6.11_p20130730)


  • enabled initrd to be able to add custom initrd file
  • set LVM to compile into kernel


General setup  --->
   [*] Initial RAM filesystem and RAM disk (initramfs/initrd) support
       [*] Support initial ramdisks compressed using gzip (NEW)
Device Drivers  --->
   Multiple devices driver support (RAID and LVM)  --->
       <*> Device mapper support 
           <*> Crypt target support
           <*> Snapshot target
           <*> Mirror target
       <*> Multipath target
           <*> I/O Path Selector based on the number of in-flight I/Os
           <*> I/O Path Selector based on the service time
